“My mum’s Jane id 59 years old, my dad Stanley Karana is 69 years old. My parents are elderly and my mum is sickly, right now as i write this, she is sleeping on the floor at the police station,… Am very worried my mum spends another night there, her health is becoming worse by the da and i don’t want to lose her,e” he said.
